Hey! Thanks for the ROM!
Quite a few users are experiencing a bug on 1.1.4 where all browsers but chrome are experiencing only 60Hz in the display's refresh rate.
Multiple users in the Nothing Discord Server - specifically from Germany - have had a second 1.1.4 30MB update that fixes this issue; Germany is clearly being treated as the beta testing ground for this hotfix.
Any chance someone can package up this latest update for the users struggling with this bug?
Our understanding is that the update
was released yesterday - 24/09/22 (UK)

Sorry @mustachedocto, I edited the message; my fingers jumped the gun! I'm an XDA noob - as mentioned in the introduction message we all receive 😅
you can find this 30MB update here:

When I uninstall magisk and restore image cannot find the image backup . how do i upgrade to 1.1.4 without losing the root?

This is pointed out in the article. You should not reboot directly after you perform the OTA upgrade. Look in the article, it's nicely described. I upgraded via OTA following it and did not lose my root.

Nothing Phone 1
Hi all,

I've seen some post about people updating to 1.1.4 while on root successfully using this instructions

However, for some reason I can't install the update using system updater/normal OTA.

Steps I've made:
1. Open Magisk, Disabled all Magisk modules.
2. Reboot (just to be sure all modules were off and did not interfered with the update)
2. Open Magisk, clicked Uninstall, then Restore images. (Toast message displayed saying original image was restored).
3. Open settings, hit update.
4. Error on updater, "Installation Problem"

As I never rebooted after "Restore images", I never lost root, so I was able to install it again on Magisk.
But does anyone know what did I do wrong for the updater to fail?

Hello i dont understand on which version i am.

If i search for updates under system, it is constantly searching.

Local update fails with error: 20.

Update via recovery fails with this message:
Package is for source build 1660378121 but expected 1663735507

Software Info says: Nothing OS: 1.1.4
Build-Number: Spacewar-S1.1-220921-1245EEA
Security Patch is from 01.09.2022

Should i do something ?

Edit: Do someone have 1.1.4 OTA Boot img?

Thanks @neilphetamine
But can you give us the origins of your links ready to download,;)
Because so far I haven't found any links to download.
Don't be offended by my request, but I'm asking for security reasons for our smartphones and PCs (since we download the links on our PCs too).

    Any 1.1.7 EEA link?
    I am waiting for the incremental European version of OS 1.1.7 (EEA)
    You can try to boot with Magisk Patched 1.1.6, it's often the same boot between same branch release.

    So download the Magisk-Patched_EEA_1.1.6_Boot.img and just boot command (no the "flash" command, any risk ;))
    If after this command device d'on't properly boot, just keep ON/OFF button for do a hard reset/reboot and device will boot again with the stock/installed boot.

    .\fastboot boot Magisk-Patched_EEA_1.1.6_Boot.img

    Device will reboot, after, on system, open Magisk :
    - Install
    - Direct installation (recommanded)
    - Go
    -After patching, reboot ;)

    It's safe and with this trick you can wait for the true 1.1.7 boot.img when it will be available
    Thank you for the advice and for the impressive work already done on this page but I ended up flashing the corresponding image. Good weekend :)

    What are the regional variants of Nothing OS ?

    Nothing offers two distinct regional variants of Nothing OS.
    • Intended for European countries is the "EEA" version, as it meets the requirements of the European Privacy Directive and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
    • The other version, the so-called "Global Version" is intended for Asian and Australian devices.
    You can easily control the regional setting of your Phone(1) by going to your Shell terminal or Android emulator (e.g. Fuss) and executing the following command:
    • This command will return "SpacewarEEA" if the device is delivered with the European firmware.
    • For International models, the result should be "Spacewar" only.

    KERNEL FOR PHONE(1) - 17-07-2022

    If you're a developer looking to create something around the Phone(1), here's something to get you started with the release of the Kernel and device tree.

    Nothing Phone 1 : Kernel Source || Device Tree
    Thanks for the tip! This did the trick, and I'm now happily re-rooted on 1.1.3 :) I was not even aware of the local system update wizard...

    Yes :
    1/ Flash Full ROM Update
    2/ Reboot normally (no risk, no EDL/Brick possibility)
    3/ Boot normally System/OS, no root
    4/ Run Magisk > Patch new boot 1.1.3 (you can know extract/found boot.img) on this thread
    5/ Take the Patched Magisk Boot
    6/ Boot on Bootloader mode (Fastboot) > Flash Magisk Boot
    I advise to always flash magisk on "safe" mode, i mean with the "boot command (not flash boot command):

    .\fastboot boot magisk_patched-2XXXX_XXXXX.img

    7/ Device will boot on System/OS with Magisk/Root granted just this time, and if not boot, just restart, old boot is always installed, more safe.
    If device boot normally with the patched Boot, just go on magisk > install > install directly (recommanded) > apply
    and reboot, voila !
